Use of Customer Information

Any personal information you provide to us will always be protected to our maximum capabilities and should you provide your e-mail address to Whittaker Mountaineering, it may be shared with our partner Rainier Mountaineering, Inc., a mountain guiding service, but will never be shared with or given away to any other third parties for marketing purposes without your expressed permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information, and to contracted service providers for purposes of providing services relating to our communications with you.

Our email marketing is permission based. If you received a mailing from us, our records indicate that (a) you have expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future ("opt-in"), including through Facebook contests, Rainier Mountain Festival participation or other marketing activities and events, or (b) you have registered or purchased or otherwise have an existing relationship with us, or (c) we have received your email address from a partner company, such as Rainier Mountaineering Inc. We respect your time and attention by controlling the frequency of our mailings. Each email sent contains an easy, automated way for you to cease receiving email from us. If you wish to do this, simply follow the unsubscribe link at the end of any email. If you believe you have received unwanted, unsolicited email, please forward a copy of that email with your comments to info@whittakermountaineering.com for review.

Any testimonials, photos or other content expressing customers’ opinion or likeness sent via email to Whittaker Mountaineering becomes the property of Whittaker Mountaineering and may be used for marketing, including our website, email and social media.
